Palace Resorts Preferred DJ

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up - if you're having or thinking of having a Palace Resorts wedding, their preferred DJ is VERY expensive.  Much more than the other DJ's who brides on this site rave about.  I'm using DJ Mannia for $900 for 4 hours and their DJ, J&S Audio Visual is $1500 for the same thing.
Just beware that you should try to get permission to use outside vendors at the very beginning of your booking process.

After doing a lot of research, ALL of their "preferred" vendors are very expensive.  The decor company they wanted me to use is DOUBLE, yes DOUBLE THE PRICE of everyone else!  Beware!

I checked with my WC at Aventura and she said that we have to use their preferred DJ.  So I booked J&S and they have been very accommodating so far.

Your WC is lying to you.  You don't HAVE to use any of their preferred vendors.  If they can get you to use them, they make more money, because they get a kick back.  I had it specifically written into my contract that I could use whoever I wanted.

Well it was written in my contract that they are no outside vendors allowed.  So, apparently things can differ between the palace resorts.

Nope, it's the same for all the Palace Resorts.  Tt was written in my contact that there are no outside vendors allowed too.  You have to request that you contracts states you can use whoever you want.  That's how they take advantage of brides unfortunately.  I personally think Palace Resorts does a TERRIBLE job with their weddings. I've been working with them for 9 months and I don't know how they stay in business.
A few other brides on here gave the huge heads up to get outside vendor clause in the contract or you end up spending a lot more money.  You can obviously use theirs, just trying to help brides who don't want to get ripped off.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
